It's the second year of Yakima's Central City Comic-Con and every year it grows. I'm excited this year as legendary "Green Arrow" artist Mike Grell will be in Yakima.

I first discovered Mike's work in 1978 as a blossoming comic book lover at the tender age of eight. Mike was already successful by the time I discovered his artwork but it didn't take away from my enthusiasm of his art.

Mike is most remembered for some classic runs on Legion Of Super-Heroes, Green Lantern/Green Arrow and his own creation The Warlord for DC Comics.

Check out Mike Grell as he sketches Green Arrow on the fly for a young fan.

It will be great to have a comic book artist of such stature in Yakima as it will send a message to the other comic book artists that Central City Comic-Con is legit.
